Working in Brisbane and Melbourne, touring nationally and internationally, debase has been creating new shows since 1998.
We produce a wide range of work for a wide range of audiences; from children’s theatre to cabaret and everything in-between.
For debase, the relationship with our audience is paramount. This is reflected in the way we create and program work with and for specific audiences.
Coming up in 2020 …
Two performers wander into a dusty room. Suddenly the space is illuminated, filled with vintage leotards, glittering with sequins, Lycra in every colour of the rainbow. One by one, the performers pull on the Lycra and are transformed. Who were the women who wore these leotards? What were their secrets? And how many interpretive dance routines will there be?
Featuring real-life stories from female-identifying bodies from all walks (and dances) of life, this is a not-to-be-missed theatrical extravaganza. Boyle and Waters in LEOTARD is one of a dazzling array of performance events happening as part of the Metro Arts, With Love festival. Come and help bid farewell to this historic arts venue and celebrate the many extraordinary performances that it has housed over the years.
DATES: 7:30pm, 4 – 8 February 2020
WHERE: Sue Benner Theatre, Metro Arts
PRICE: General Admission $32 + booking fee | Concession $25 + booking fee.

“David Megarrity and Bridget Boyle dance on the knife edge of hilariously oblivious and utterly self-aware. … Warmwaters had the intimate audience in the palm of their hands”
